Dartmouth College (pronounced /ˈdɑrtməθ/, DART-məth) is a private, Ivy League university, comprising a liberal arts college, Dartmouth Medical School, Thayer School of Engineering, and Tuck School of Business, as well as 19 graduate programs in the arts and sciences.[8] It is located in Hanover, New Hampshire. Incorporated as "Trustees of Dartmouth College,"[9][10] it is one of the nine Colonial Colleges founded before the American Revolution.[11] With an undergraduate enrollment of 4,196 and a total student enrollment of 5,987, Dartmouth is the smallest school in the Ivy League.[3]

Dartmouth College was established in 1769 by Congregational minister Eleazar Wheelock. After a long period of financial and political struggles, Dartmouth emerged from relative obscurity in the early 20th century.[12] Dartmouth alumni, from Daniel Webster to the many donors in the 19th and 20th centuries, have been famously involved in their college.[13]

Dartmouth is located on a rural 269-acre (1.1 km²) campus in the Upper Valley region of New Hampshire. Given the College's isolated location, participation in athletics and the school's Greek system is high.[14] Dartmouth's 34 varsity sports teams compete in the Ivy League conference of the NCAA Division I. Students are well-known for preserving a variety of strong campus traditions.[15][16][17][18]
